Gah! That's awful. I know exactly what you mean about the smell. You'll smell it for DAYS and you'll probably remember it forever. EW!!!!!

When I was in my first apartment in the summertime (when I had all the windows open) a raccoon got fried on a transformer right outside our third floor window. I still remember that smell. It filled the whole place. :/

Uch, thanks for the heads up lol it was the worst smell ever, the worst thing though was that my mother kept coming in to my room and going that snails dead and I was like... no no its not its sleeping and then a week and a bit later... dead rotten snail lmao.

I can't believe you just made a vegetarian of nearly 5 years laugh about a fried raccoon lol.

I'm gonna soak it bleach water solution to see what happens, the worst thing, is that when I asked my father where should I dispose of the dead snail he said to me throw it in the outside bin... bin collecting day is next wednesday... so its not going to be pretty haha

I won't say I didn't shed a tear for the raccoon. I cried all night. I mean, I didn't just smell it, I saw him cook. I'll never, ever forget it. I'm scarred for life.

Next time listen to your Mother. LOL!!! Ugh, I'm just trying to imagine the smell. Probably better that I don't, huh? Old seafood is the most rancid, awful smell on the planet. MUCH worse then cooked, fuzzy, raccoon.

Aww poor racoon.
I kept the shell's of Dawn and Moon in the tanks and now I use them to decorate Jet's 5g.. I just rinsed the shells in hot water.
And when the dead snail's slipped out of their shell's, I just fed them to the fish.

I'm sorry for Heidi!
